I agree.
Most people jump on every single overhyped thing, because they need to seem cool and modern.
The reality, at least for business, is that tablets are useless. I've never seen one person using it, for business. Why? Because it's unpractical, limited, and still cumbersome! Everything the tab can do, a laptop can do better, with more freedom. Typing an email? Have to put the tablet flat on table and start smearing your finger grease all over the thing.. Drag drop a file attachment from the deskt... Ooops, no, BUY an app for it. Wanna..? -BUY the app for it. BUY, BUY, BUY, from the single only store that allows apps for it.

Anyway, I'm not on the doubter side here; I'm sure this is a flop. People use them for bs tasks, games that remind me of the early 90s. Oh, and updating their pathetic fb page as if the world is watching them, eagerly awaiting their next update.

These days, new gadget, pay all the usual bloggers, websites, to make a "review". Don't be foooled by the "reviews"; 95% of them are really paid ads. And then people think "everybody says.."; but no, ask any computer geek like me, and we'll tell you what these finger-grease flat screens are good for... *points at children playing games on fb*
